If a person driving a vehicle in Puerto Cabezas, hits and kills a female pig; the owner of the pig receives a premimum "pig price" and the offender (killer) must also pay more pesos per a formula for the unborn pigs of the dead female pig.
is there a pig-herder not pictured or do nicaraguans trust their pigs to run wild?
i can't imagine their completely wild -- seems they'd be way too valuable a resource.
No, there was no cowboy or pigboy watching these critters as far as I could see. There were houses nearby so the pigs weren't far from home.
